Venus Transits

For my east coast friends

Transit Headquarters: Venus Crosses the Sun June 8
By Robert Roy Britt
Senior Science Writer

On June 8, Venus will cross in front of the Sun for the first time since 1882, and backyard skywatchers can see the spectacle . The best view will be from Europe, but parts of America and most of Asia and Africa can witness the historic passage, weather permitting.

For everyone else:

If anyone needs a good popup blocker that suppresses even those popups that seem to get around the toolbars lately, seems to work great. Alternatively, you should add really annoying sites to your "Restricted" zone. That will disable javascript for those sites (or download Firefox from Mozilla).

  • Webinars / teleconferences

    Protip: Don't leave your phone on vibrate on your desk while you're mic's live. To everyone on the call, it makes it sound like you just farted.

  • Queue

    Been in position #2 for 30 minutes. Only sure fire way to move up in the queue is to try to make it to the bathroom and back.

  • Damn you, HP and Adobe

    My efforts to go paperless at the office are being met with epic fail.
